    After a lot of reading and research (mainly here) I rooted my Razr Maxx and am on .215. I did this primarily because I'm grandfathered in on Verizon for unlimited data and wanted to use my phone as my primary internet access for my home. (I live in the sticks and the only connection I had was Hughes.net). My questions deal with going back to .211 to get the OTA jb update.
    1. I have not yet received notice of the OTA. Will I receive notice if I'm on .215?
    2. Because my primary interest is WiFi tether, if I go back to .211 to accept the OTA, can i root and get WiFi tether after the OTA?

    I'm sorry If these are very basic questions. I've read and read but it just isn't clear to me. Thanks.

    I can answer the first question. If you are on .215, you will not get the OTA Jelly Bean.

    Assuming you mean to access the WiFi hotspot without a subscription yes, if you root you have several ways to use WiFi Hotspot. There are several users reporting at least two that I've read, apps that work after root, and additionally a method of hacking an SQL file after rooting, to apparently turn the WiFi hotspot on without a subscription.

    Yellow Jacket is correct. You will need to roll back to .211 too upgrade. See my thread in RAZR support for instructions.

    FoxKat's Razr/Maxx Jelly Bean Leak Classroom W/MattyP & Friends

    Classroom 1 is for rolling back to .211. Once done, you can receive the ota to 98.72.16, so you'll skip the rest.

    As an alternate, you can use the new Droid RAZR Utility Jelly Bean version to flash Jelly Bean and root with Dan Rosenberg's RAZR_Blade exploit, also included. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=239539

    I know I sound dense but I just want to be sure. Can I use your alternative method without rolling back to .211? I checked and I am on XT912.

    I know that I sound really dumb but I don't understand if using the Droid Razr Utility XT912 is an alternative to Classroom 1 or just to accepting the OTA. My only question is "If I use your alternate, do I have to go back to .211?" Sorry to keep bugging you guys
